Welcome to the Challenger Inteview Series!
We’re excited to speak with you and create a Challenger Interview film!
The purpose of the Challenger Interview format is to present a functional ‘pre-sales’ approach to discuss your solution as if answering questions from a prospective customer.
The format is designed as a rapid-fire Q&A that will elicit the details to present a compressed yet comprehensive positioning of your solution and the asscociated business outcomes.

On this page we collect all your details so we can create your episode; solution description, company and personal bio, headshot, LinkedIn, and the like.
Now we need to know when things are happening! Then select a time that works for you accoring to your timezone.
Once you’ve locked in a time, you’ll receive questions and support materials so you know exactly what to expect!
Absolutely! There is a non-recorded function within our platform, but attendees need to be on time and not be disruptive. Just request additional attendees at least 24 hours before the Interview, and we can provide a special link to these people.
Not really – if you can attend a video conference, you’ll be fine. Of course, the better quality the microphone and camera, the better the end result. The easiest way is to try and get access to a dedicated webcam and external mic (rather than those built-in to a laptop) to provide the best end result.
Depending on the format, you may or may not need a camera – KBKast, for instance, only really requires a microphone. If, however, you’re recording a Challenger Interview, a WebKast, or a custom film project, a stand-alone camera is always going to give better results.
You’ll receive a link during the scheduling process and set as your ‘location’ inside your calendar.
Please only access Riverside in Chrome browser.
Recordings will not work in Incognito mode.
Do not use a VPN – the platform won’t work.
Ther format only really works with the host and one other person. The purpose is to provide a short, succint presentation, and too many people creates too many opportunities for tangents and a lack of clarity. Additional people can join the recording session, but they will be in an Audience role where they can hear, but aren’t recorded.
We do not live stream any interviews unless specifically requested. Everything is recorded, edited, approved, and only then do we deploy this recording.
We may ask you to re-record on a rare occasion if we think the final output doesn’t meet our quality standards.
Please ensure that your laptop and phone are turned off or put on silent to avoid background noise from alerts during the recording.
